American food manufacturer McCormick & Co, headquartered in Maryland, has won approval to build a huge food processing factory in Peterborough.
The flavouring and condiments specialist is expected to create up to 300 jobs when it opens its new 59,118 square meter industrial hub at Peterborough Gateway in Cambridgeshire.
The proposals for the new development, which is set within a 9.49 hectares site, have been given the go-ahead by Peterborough City Council planners.
The development at Plot 113, Forli Strada, Alwalton Hill, is to be carried out in two phases and along with storage and distribution will feature a two-storey office block and a single storey transport hub with a total of 32 HGV parking bays.
Staff will work across three shifts over 24 hours, seven days a week. There will be a 266 space car park.
Fortune 500 company McCormick & Co was founded 131 years ago in Maryland, USA, and now employs about 12,000 people worldwide and sells its spices, seasonings and condiments across 150 countries.
